Can I be awarded alimony even though I have a job?

Alimony is a payment made from one spouse to another after divorce. Historically, alimony was paid by a husband to his ex-wife who had worked in the home during their marriage. Today, alimony is still used to help balance the economic effects of divorce by requiring the higher-wage-earner to financially support the lower-wage-earner after divorce.
